Not skewed by the military.

The majority of Coast Guard transfers to Elizabeth City do their homework and do not reside in Pasquotank County.

Navy families reside here too.

I have met many Navy families here who serve in Norfolk.

CHECK ECSU Enrollment

215 persons estimated to have left ECity. How many were from ECSU?

In previous instances it was determined that enrollment at ECSU had dropped markedly (700 or so) in the last few years and in fact was the actual cause of the 150+ drop through 2012. It would be most informative if TDA had gotten those figures for this article.

Military rotation?

Aside from the antics of City Council members driving people away, perhaps some of the numbers include Military families.


They moved back up north.
